Tho deceased, like rill mon ii. tho flesh,
had his faults and his virtues, but wo '
trust that it may he said of him that his
faults woro ol' snell little consequence us 1
to emphasize his virtue. Tho writer 1
formed tho ucqunintnuco of Mr. Huck a- i
boo sevoral years ugo when hin (JOH, thc i
gillied nial lamented Oharlos Hueknboc,
was iu charge of Beauty Spot Academy.
Thc son, omburking in a new entei piho,
used froipiontly lo consult tho writer, he
having had muoh ox pei io ncc as a podu
eoguo, us io his proper course of actina.
Tho confidence and trust of tho young
man inspired a deep interest on my part
in tho success of the undertaking. At
the close ol' tho scholastic year, tho re?
suits of which were a proud vindication
of Ins eminent future for this most ex
neting of ull avocation?, ho usko.1 tho
writer to dolivor un address, which re
quest was granted, und ibo address de

was indestructible, und upon tho proper
discharge ol'our duly in ibis connection
linne tiio mighty interests ol'our country.
Tho son, with a bright future before
hitit, having fitted himself for tho liar
while torching, died shortly after enter
ing upon the duties of his profession, in
Bonnctlsviilc Thc father was utterly
prostrated by his death and never
seemed right to mo afterwards. When

hand, with great tears in his bud eves,

My acquaintance with the deceased
was dc* tined to have nuoll C" link of sad
ness, for the last time we met was at 'he
funeral of ibo doar wife of a valued
fl ?end. On leaving the sacred place, ho
h d, and indicntetl a nearer way to my
homo, and, when I. was driving so short
ly after to his burial, the reflection caine
unhidden that bc might he now pointing
in his departure thc way to nie to the
realms of eternity, and. us I placed on

faith and secure in its existence, could
Minde nt thc drawn dagger of death aud

After a most impressive prayer bv that
loved and eloquent Minister, Kev. W. H.
Kirton, the funeral sermon was delivered
hy that venerable man of] God, Rev. ,NV.
Iv. Breeden, who-o bodily energy, like
his religious zea', appears to bo un
flagging. It .seems little lc*s than a
miracle that he does, day after day, make
such a vast expenditure of nervous oner

question what is it to be rendy to die, the
thought that then ran tiri ouch thc dis

will bc uphold. It protects thc righteous

Success in tho near future.
Wo realtlrni our demands for freo raw

tho prosperity of ibo woolen industry,
Upon which that of tho wool grower is
dependent, while it will afford relief to
all consumers of woolen goods. We call
tho particular attention of tho farmers
of this stato, who have borne tho heavy
burden of high tariff taxation without
any of the prosperity promised them,

tho reduction of customs taxes upon ar

I ?gbo, id '"'r' Wea the r, licein addicted t?
wearing straw bats with walo brims
turned down. Tho fashionable lady, the
fisherman and tho farmer are all wear
ing precisely the same kind of hat.
Whore dp these hals eomo from? They
aro so marvelously cheap that they al
most scorn liku Topsy, "to have glowed."
Tho grout majority of thom cost tho re
tailer only thirty-live cents a doy.cn. It
seems impossible that any man or ma
chino could do co much plaiting for so
little money. ,
These straw hats aro manufactured
abroad in the Hist instance. They come
from different countries, and have been
accordingly divided by tho trade into
four ?lusses. Italy gives us "Leghornn;"
Spain sends us "Malagas;"South Ameri
ca exports to us "Curacoas," and from
China wo get "grass hats."
Willi the exception, perhaps, of the
China variety, theso bats aro all what is
known as "by products." Even the
easily contented peasants of sunny Italy
could hardly afford to make it tho busi
ness of their lives to furnish this coun
try with straw hats at a remuneration
of, at most, fifteen cents a dozen. But
children need not bo very strong or very
big lo wander about their homes during
tho sum mor time and collect tho wold
straw in small bundles. Then when tho
long nights arrive, all the members ol
tho family sit and pin it tho straw into
braids and then stitch tho braids into
These hats aro quickly bought up by
exporters. They aro then packed in
bales, which are subjected to hydraulic
pressure in order to diminish their bulk.
When they beconio nothing more nor
less than flat disks of straw by this treat
ment they aro shipped to tho United
. There is nothing like these straw hats
bindo in this country; no grass or straw
so .uitablo, no labor so little worth. Yet
tho keen eye of Unelo Sam makes them
j out us a special object from which tho
inhabitants of his territory should be
sternly protected by an ad valorem duty
of 80 poi cent. In this way tho bloated
surplus was increased in tho year 1887
Unce in this country, after the grasp
ing surplus has had its pound of flesh,
tho hats get on well ont ugh. Thero aro
several large factories in Massachusetts
which sha po them and blench or dyo
tliohi, sometimes even ornament them
with ribbons. Then they are sold to tho
jobber, ofter profit bas been calculated
oil not cost, plus 30 per cent. duty. Tho
jobber calculates his profit on tho same
basis. Tho 30 per cent, grows, Uko a
rolling snowball, until it finally causes
tho consumer to pay about doublo what
Ino might if tho senseless tariff on theso
cheap straw lints was abolished.
Agriculture is oppressed by a great,
burdensome, unfair war tax. Is that
right? .Shall it continue ? What wry
